Taking Horny Goat Weed For Bodybuilding

Posted on January 22 2013 by Daniel Sampson in Horny Goat Weed Bodybuilding, Icariin Bodybuilding, Epimedium Bodybuilding

It used to be that the herbal extract Horny Goat Weed was used only as a herbal aphrodisiac to raise libido and battle the symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction but all that has changed and Horny Goat Weed has changed in terms of the strengths available. This change in strength has meant that Horny Goat Weed has now become a favourite supplement amongst bodybuilders and today you will find out exactly how and why this is.

Up until recent years Horny Goat Weed was sold in one strength however in the past decade there has been vast improvements in the extraction techniques applied to this herb and this has resulted in much purer extracts being manufactured.  Horny Goat Weed strength is gauged by the content of a single active flavonoid called 'icariin' and it is measured as a percentage contained within the Horny Goat Weed extract.

The icariin percentage which was pretty much the only percentage available on the herbal health market for many years was 10% icariin strength, however due to the advancements in extraction processes mentioned above we are now able to find extracts of up to 60% icariin for consumer over the counter use.  Horny Goat Weed extracts of 60% icariin are not only massively more beneficial for the purpose of libido and erectile dysfunction but now also have an arena on the bodybuilding supplement stage.

The reason that 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed is so good for bodybuilders as a supplement is that it has a dual action, which is to boost both Nitric Oxide and Testosterone levels simultaneously.  This type of dual action is extremely rare from a single ingredient supplement such as Horny Goat Weed capsules and is valued highly by the majority of bodybuilders wishing to increase both performance stamina and muscle mass.  Taking a high strength Horny Goat Weed extract like 60% icariin will increase your energy at the gym, reduce fatigue and speed up muscle repair meaning faster muscle gains!
